That is because, in the latter case, $HOME is expanded in your current
shell, before the command line is executed. When the $ is escaped, as in
the first example, then the "$HOME" is expanded  when the echo command is
actually executed, in a sudo subshell.

I would expect the second case to produce the same result as just doing
"echo $HOME".
